Future Islands : 'As Long As You Are' Remixes 2
13th July 2021

Today, Future Islands have shared the second EP, ALAYA Remixes 2, in a series of 3 remix EPs of songs from their critically acclaimed 2020 album As Long As You Are. The EP includes a slowed down chillwave version of “Thrill” by synth-pop songwriter and producer Washed Out, a house-beat rendition of “Thrill” by San Francisco electronic artist COMPUTER DATA, and a left-field, upbeat remix of “Hit The Coast” by Smallboy. The new EP is preceded by ALAYA Remixes 1, which featured “Thrill (Did They Hear Me Calling)” by legendary LA dance producer Egyptian Lover, “Plastic Beach” by Moss of Aura (Gerrit Welmers’ solo project), and “The Painter” by Alle Alle.

Future Islands - As Long As You Are Remixes 2
1. For Sure - Washed Out Remix
2. Thrill - Computer Data Remix
3. Hit the Coast - Smallboy Remix

Released in October 2020, As Long As You Are looks is an album about trust, full of honesty, redemption and “letting go”, allowing old wounds to heal and bringing painful chapters to a close. Signalling a new era for Future Islands, drummer Mike Lowry joined as a fully-fledged member and songwriter bolstering the founding trio of William Cashion, Samuel T. Herring and Gerrit Welmers. Together, the four-piece took on official production duties for the first time, co-producing As Long As You Are with engineer Steve Wright at his Wrightway Studios in Baltimore. Their brand of new wave synth-pop full of bright melodies and heavenly choruses is as euphoric and uninhibitedly joyful as anything the band has done in their 14-year career
